The Ghost is a character in Link's Awakening.[2]


Link's Awakening

The Ghost is a spirit who starts haunting Link after the completion of the Angler's Tunnel, wanting him to take it to its house.[3] As Link cannot enter Dungeons while the Ghost follows him, he must help it in order to enter Catfish's Maw.[4] Once Link brings it to the Ghosts House north of Toronbo Shores,[5] the Ghost examines it before saying it is essentially unchanged from what it was when it was alive.[6] The Ghost then asks Link to bring it to its grave,[7][8] which is located in the Koholint Prairie near the Cemetery. Once there, the Ghost thanks Link and tells him to look inside one of the Pots in its house to find a Secret Seashell.[9] The Secret Seashell does not appear until after Link has fulfilled the Ghost's requests.

In Link's Awakening DX, if Link approaches the Ghost's grave after returning it there, the Photographer will appear and take a Photograph.

Other Appearances

Link's Awakening (Cagiva)

In the Link's Awakening manga by Ataru Cagiva, the Ghost is named Nakura, who is a former soldier. It saves Link's life by possessing him during his fight against Karuna and gives him a more powerful Sword after he takes it to its house.


  • If Link sprinkles Magic Powder on the Ghost's grave, it tells him to stop or suffer the effects of a curse.[10] Despite this, it will not put a curse of any kind on Link.
